Message to INFODIO readers: investigative journalism, which is what this site does, takes lots of time. Visiting media looking for a quick run down on Venezuela's gargantuan corruption, have the decency to at least cite the source when plagiarising this site's content without attribution (exhibit Reuters here and here, exhibit Bloomberg here, exhibit OCCRP here). To all readers, do the right thing, the honest thing: support independent investigative journalism, help us expose rampant corruption. Note added 28/06/2021: impostors are using INFODIO's former editor's full name, and a fake email address (alek.boyd.arregui at to send copyright infringement claims / take down requests to web hosting companies (exhibit Hostgator). The attempt is yet another effort paid by corrupt thugs to erase information about their criminal activities. has no issues with other websites / journalists using / posting information published here, so long as the source is properly cited.

Court unseals PDVSA & Boies Engagement Letter

Great news: the court has unsealed the Engagement Letter, between PDVSA and Boies Schiller Flexner LLP, which sets the rules for establishment of PDVSA US Litigation Trust. This is but confirmation of what this site published a while ago. Worth asking, again: just why would PDVSA agree to gift 66% of potential proceeds pertaining ensuing lawsuit to Boies & Alex Pencu (litigators), Duker (convict) and Brennan (a former police officer DO remember)? Rampant and grotesque corruption is the only answer.
